On Monday, Favour Madu, sister of late gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu, told the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Abuja that the late singer’s husband, Peter, mistreated her, resulting in her death.

In the alleged culpable homicide case launched against Nwachukwu by the Attorney-General of the Federation’s office, Madu testified as a second witness for the prosecution.

Madu claimed Nwachukwu abused her late sister like an animal and starved her despite being the house’s provider while demanding justice for her.

“My sister developed ulcer as a result of malnutrition since Nwachukwu never provided for his family,” Favour Madu told the court. She was the family’s breadwinner. My sister owns the house where they used to dwell.

“He drove her out of the home in the rain with their last kid, and her first son was the one who got a wrapper to cover the baby.”

Madu claimed that her family referred to Nwachukwu as “Manager” because he had complete control over everything, including her money, and her fear of him caused her to have strained relationships with her relatives.

She added, “Her husband never treated her well. He treated her like an animal, beat her anyhow, never made her happy and never allowed her to associate with her family.

“There was a time she went for ministration and when she asked for stage fee, she was told that N2million had been paid into her husband’s account.

“He was responsible for booking events, collecting money and only told her to go and minister without giving pocket money. When my father was ill, he wanted to come to Abuja for treatment but the defendant refused and he eventually died.

“While travelling for our father’s burial, the defendant slapped her because she complained of how rough he was driving.”

During cross-examination, the defense lawyer, I A Aliyu, inquired as to how Madu learned of the events while in Enugu, but the latter responded that she learned of them through a telephone conversation.

Aliyu also asked the witness if the family intended to profit financially from her late sister’s estate, and she said yes.

When questioned if she asked the physicians what caused her sister’s death in the hospital, she said that the defendant blocked the deceased’s twin sister and brother from doing so.

Justice Njideka Nwosu-Iheme, the court, released the witness and remanded the case to Tuesday for further proceedings.
